Neither a remake of a 1961 western nor the movie of a weird TV series from about a decade ago, Pierce Brosnan stars in the new heist thriller The Misfits, due out in June. Watch the trailer...
Even a federal maximum-security prison can’t hold Richard Pace (Pierce Brosnan,) a brilliant international thief. But his daring escape and high-octane car chase, eluding the FBI and police, ends with him being scooped up by The Misfits, a band of modern-day Robin Hoods. Led by the eccentric and charismatic Ringo (Nick Cannon) with Violet (Jamie Chung), the Prince (Rami Jaber), and Wick (Mike Angelo) with Pace’s daughter Hope (Hermione Corfield)— a mysterious group who do devious things for all the right reasons. The skilled group convinces Pace to join them to pull off the heist of the century: stealing millions in gold bars kept under one of the most secure prisons on earth, owned by rogue businessman Schultz (Tim Roth), and used for funding terrorist groups worldwide. Aside from the money, Pace wants revenge against Schultz, the man behind his incarceration. From LA to Abu Dhabi, it will take supercharged engines, forged identities, multiple cons, camels, nitro and massive explosions to succeed.
Directed by Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2) The Misfits steals onto big screens, where available, on June 11th then VOD/Digital on 15th.
